Ever tried to teach yourself the guitar? Tried to follow chord books or tab from the web? How easy is it to see which finger the tutor is using on those YouTube videos?
With one-to-one lessons from Alex, you won’t have to experience those problems again. Using clear language, easy to remember patterns and innovative memory techniques, you’ll quickly be playing some of your favourite songs. You’ll understand what you’re doing and why you’re doing it. You’ll retain more of what you learn than you did before and your motivation to persevere will skyrocket.
My guitar playing experience spans over thirty years and I’ve been teaching people of all ages for ten of those. In that time, I’ve learned a lot about the teaching methods that work and those that don’t. Not everybody learns the same way. Some learn visually, others by explanation, some through repetition or diagrams. I’ll use a combination of methods which we’ll agree upon and which suit you.
My approach is that of a musician rather than solely a guitarist. As such you’ll learn how to think musically from the outset so you gain a greater understanding, appreciation and enjoyment from your playing
In addition to studio or home sessions, I’ll offer support using Whatsapp or Facebook Messenger where I’ll upload videos demonstrating techniques, chords, solos, improvisation, theory, strumming patterns, fingerstyle, licks, riffs, in fact anything you want to learn!
I also share news regularly on social media which can help complement your learning.
